FTSE 100 providing mixed feelings
The FTSE continues to retreat from the 7390 area that it tested last week. If this marks a new lower high, then we look towards crucial support at 7260 as a potential area where buyers may look to re-enter.
A close below here would indicate that we could be on our way to 7194 and then 7130. Buyers need to push through 7390 and then post a daily close above the recent all-time high at 7448.
